Spurs Capture 4th And A Chance At The ‘big Cup’

FOOTBALL BETTING: Tottenham prevailed 1-0 at Eastlands last night against Manchester City to tie up 4th; The title is yet to be decided, only 1 point separates the top 2.

Tottenham Hotspur returned to Europe’s premiere competition last night after a deserved 1-0 victory at close competitors Manchester City. In a game that ebbed and flowed, eventually Spurs gained the ascendancy and justified the 8/11 fav tags for 4th place. Earlier in the week, Hull were mathematically relegated after a last minute Wigan equaliser left them 5 points adrift with 1 game to go.

Paddy Power have already been tempted to put 6/1 on City to win next year’s league, making them 3rd fav ahead of Arsenal. And the vultures are beginning to circle as Mancini is a paltry 1/3 to depart the managerial post at Man City before the start of next season (Ladbrokes). William Hill have put a tight looking 20/1 on Spurs winning the Champion’s League next year, which will surely grow as the tournament nears.

2 of the season’s main sagas are now complete, on Sunday all eyes will fall to Stamford Bridge. There is not such a sense of excitement as might be expected from 2 teams only 1 point apart at the top, reflected by 1/10 placed on Chelsea to win the league by Bet365. This is due to the fact that Chelsea have, by their standards, an easy home tie and Man United have a slightly trickier, if still straightforward, home tie with Stoke. Only 3 points would do for United and Ladbrokes offer 7/1 on them snatching the title but it would take a miracle for them to obtain a record 4th title.

A few firms are now offering a ‘top 6′ market, Betdaq have 3/1 on Liverpool to make the top 6 and 2/9 on Aston Villa. Villa must face tricky Blackburn at home while Liverpool can turn over Hull. With Liverpool’s vastly superior goal difference, 3/1 would seem quite generous.

In the top goalscorer market, Rooney and Drogba head into the weekend both on 26 goals. Rooney can be backed at 1/1 with William Hill, Drogba also 1/1 with Stan James. Forced to pick, it would be Drogba that would catch the eye due to Chelsea’s ability to hit big scores but essentially it seems like a flip of the coin, with the added possibility of a dead heat halving your stakes.
